After sharpening my analytical and problem solving skills through an undergraduate degree in Mathematics at UCL, I am currently a postgraduate student at the University of Surrey following the International Hotel Management course.

The hospitality and tourism industry has always been one of my favourites. Marketing a service or a product requires creativity, while managing to keep high standards requires passion and determination, skills which I enjoy using the most when trying to deliver an exceptional outcome.

Developing my organisation,leadership and communication skills throughout the last 4 years as a student and intern, I feel ready to embark on a career that will enable me to use these skills in an industry that requires frequent innovation and a strong work ethic.

My vision is to one day return to my home country and apply my knowledge in order to further enhance the tourism sector in Cyprus, the main contributor to the island's GDP.
